Winter Storm Forces U.S. Airlines to Cancel More Than 1,000 Flights

More than half were Southwest flights

On Monday, more than 1,000 flights into or out of the United States were canceled due to a severe winter storm, with about half of those coming from Southwest Airlines.

A total of 1,019 flights were canceled as of 6:00 pm ET, according to flight-tracking service FlightAware.

Low-cost carrier Southwest earlier this month faced U.S. government backlash for canceling 16,700 flights over the holidays as it grappled with bad weather and outdated technology.
